Spicy Garlic and Pepper Shrimp

Reviewed: Feb. 21, 2012
I altered the recipe for four servings. I substituted the veggie oil with olive oil and reduced the amount to four tablespoons. I added two tablespoons of fresh minced ginger which I added with the garlic during cooking. As suggested by another, I added some frozen mixed veggies-broc, caul, carrots, snow peas. I steamed them in their bag in the microwave and added them at the end. I also reduced the red peppers to one teaspoon. My hubby added more peppers to his plate as desired. Also served with a side of long grained brown rice. A meal we will have again.

Mike's Drunken Mussels

Reviewed: Feb. 21, 2012
Do not attempt to substitute canned oysters for Mussels when you cannot find them. NOT a good substitution! I posted a pic of the end result which looked more like a soup.

Grilled Asian Ginger Pork Chops

Reviewed: Feb. 21, 2012
These were absolutely delicious! We were able to marinate them overnight. I also cooked some read onions with them in my pan as we were unable to grill them. Also served with a side of long grained brown rice.

Asian Beef with Snow Peas

Reviewed: Feb. 21, 2012
Was a good recipe. I don't personally like peas too much, which is the reason for the lower star. My husband likes them and enjoyed the dish. I took the advice of another reviewer and doubled the "sauce".

Salsa Fajita-Ranch Chicken Wrap

Reviewed: Feb. 29, 2012
Actually didn't make this salsa exactly, but just made my own which is quite similar. Used jalapeno instead of yellow or sweet pepper.

Herbed Chicken Nuggets

Reviewed: Feb. 29, 2012
Not my best homemade nuggets, but they worked. I did not use the wheat germ - I swapped it for more bread crumbs. I am not sure how big the chicken breasts are for others, but$four would be way to much for the amount of breading.

Scallops with Orange and Honey

Reviewed: Mar. 5, 2012
I liked the recipe, but think next time I would double the ingredients for the sauce as it just didn't seem like enough. I rated it a 2 because I made it for my husband and he thought it wasn't flavorful enough. I think I will additionally add fresh ginger next time to give it a bit of a kick. We put the scallops and sauce on top of chinese egg noodles.

Herbed Chicken Nuggets

Reviewed: Mar. 5, 2012
Not my favorite recipe, but they were okay. I didn't find it important to cut my pieces uniformly which didn't matter. My husband thought they tasted even better the next day. I didn't use the wheat germ indicated in the description.

David's Yellow Cake

Reviewed: Mar. 5, 2012
I used this recipe in a boston cream cheesecake recipe that calls for a boxed yellowcake mix. I found this absolutely delicious! I only used half, so with the other half of the mix, I added some corn starch and baking soda in hopes of ensuring my cupcakes formed a dome. They didn't. I added coconut and cut up mandarin oranges. I then topped them with homemade butter cream frosting with real fresh squeezed mandarin juice and orange flavoring. They were great!

Fajita-Ranch Chicken Wraps

Reviewed: Mar. 5, 2012
This was tasty. I did add some black beans that I heated separately and fresh mushrooms that I added to the chicken and onions for longer cooking. Also tried grape seed oil instead of the oil the recipe called for-no change to the flavor detected. Also used whole wheat wraps.

Barbecue Sauce for Pulled Chicken Sandwiches

Reviewed: Mar. 5, 2012
This was bland. I had to double the recipe and had to add many additional ingredients including some Maker's Mark 46. After cooking the chicken in it, I had to add a bottle of BBQ sauce.

Pulled Chicken Sandwiches

Reviewed: Mar. 5, 2012
I rated this 4, because after all my tweaks to the barbecue sauce and adding a bottle of barbecue sauce it tasted great! I served them on wheat buns. I cooked the chicken in my crock pot all day with my the barbecue sauce from the recipe which I doubled and altered. It didn't have enough flavor so after shredding the chicken and before serving, I added a bottle of BBQ sauce.

Red Beans and Rice Burgers

Reviewed: Mar. 7, 2012
There didn't seem to be anything to bind these together to make them stay into a patty. I thought they tasted OK, but the hubby said he had to drowned his in ketchup and tomato. I will probably not make this again.

Chicken Puffs-Shannon style

Reviewed: Mar. 7, 2012
I made way too much for the family. They tasted good, but I probably over-Ninjaed the chicken.

Kai Kang Dang (Chicken Curry with Coconut Milk)

Reviewed: Mar. 7, 2012
Hubby liked it. If he had more curry even though he doubled the recipe amount would have possibly earned it five stars.

Honey-Ginger Crusted Chicken

Reviewed: Mar. 10, 2012
When preparing this recipe, I doubled the ingredients and to save time used already cooked rotisserie chicken from the frozen food section. I dredged the chicken in the honey, OJ and ginger and then dredged in the dry ingredients. I also squoze 1/2 a lemon into the liquid mixture. Flavorful and delicious.

Asparagus and Cashews

Reviewed: Mar. 13, 2012
The cashews, sesame oil and ginger nicely complemented the asparagus. Definitely one to have on a regular basis. No changes to the recipe.
